    John Wimberley benefit sale and eBay store.

    Hello again.

    I would like to direct you to John Wimberley’s eBay store, http://stores.ebay.com/wimberleybenefitsale. I have the pleasure (I think) of donating a print to be auctioned off. When I say, “I Think” that’s because I’m with some very big names. Some very fine company! Photographers, who I have always enjoyed their work, their thoughts of our medium and truly enjoy working with on several workshops and educational events. Please, share the link with others who may wish to help John and possibly be the winning bidder of some truly fine photographs!
    Remember, this is part of the fund raising efforts to help John and Teri, They have been burden with terrible bad luck when Teri was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. They have been trying to make ends meet. Teri is now in hospice care, she is bed ridden and John has been under medication for stress. The funds they gather will help greatly.
    I don’t know about you but I would be outside of my mind if my lifes partner, my best friend, my wife was passing and I had to walk over to the local funeral home, make final arrangements for her and then come home to fix her dinner. John has done this and has been doing more for over a year now. If you can, please help. If you wish to donate directly or wish to send a word to John and Teri? Here is their email address, tjwimberley@charter.net.
    The same address is John’s paypal account.
    Thank you.

    Letter from John to those donated prints for the auction.

    Dear Fellow Photographer,

    First, I want to thank you again for your contribution to the Wimberley Benefit Sale auction. I also want to thank Robert Brummitt for coming up with the idea of a print sale and, for contacting you regarding donations.

    All prints are now in my hands, and I’m ready to auction them on eBay. I have a fair amount of experience buying and selling on eBay, and have been pleased with the amount of attention that listed items, including prints, receive. For the benefit auction, I’ve opened an eBay store named “Wimberley Benefit Sale” at http://stores.ebay.com/wimberleybenefitsale. I plan to list the donated prints in 4 overlapping, 7 day auctions. Twenty photographers have donated prints, so the work of five photographers will be presented in each auction. Some of you generously donated more than one print, and in those cases I’ll auction your prints as a single lot. If you want me to say anything in particular about you or your work in the auction description, please let me know very soon. And it’s possible that I’ll contact you before I list your prints for more information.

    To find the store on eBay, first search for one of the listed photographer’s names. Then click on “Visit Store” on the right side of the web page.

    The first auction will begin March 10, and the last will end April 16. Please note that this schedule may have to change if Teri's condition changes. If so, I‘ll let you know immediately.

    1) March 13 - 20: Steve Anchell, Robert Brummitt, Christopher Burkett, Martha Casanave, Charles Cramer

    2) March 20 - 27: Mitch Dowbrowner, Jon Fishback, Hal Gage, Don Jacobson, Gene Kennedy

    3) March 27 - 3: Don Kirby, Russell Levin, Stu Levy, Philip Morgan, Ann Quinn

    4) April 3 - 10: Ryuijie, John Sexton, Matt Vogt, David Lorenz Winston, Huntington Witherill

    Please do all you can to spread the word about the auctions! It’s a chance for exposure for your work, and it’s for a very good cause.

    Warm regards,

    Teri & John Wimberley

    This week's auction is half way done. The prints are sitting pretty low right now. Time to have a look, bid on those that you like and maybe you will be lucky enough to win a Christopher Burkett or Martha Casanave print. Here is the link to the site, http://stores.ebay.com/wimberleybenefitsale.

    Ok folks, here are the next set of photographers for the John and Teri Wimberley benefit sale on eBay.
    Mitch Dowbrowner, Jon Fishback, Hal Gage, Don Jacobson, and Gene Kennedy. Landscape, close-ups, abstracts and figure work. Black & White and Color prints. All marvelous work!
    Last weeks, was a torrid of bidding to the very last second. It was very exciting to see how things would turn out to be. Some great bargains. Someone won a 7 print set by Steve Anchell and another won two prints by Charles Cramer. This week also has sets of two or more prints up for auction.

    The auctions are now over. I want to sincerely thank not only Robert Brummitt for the idea and for collecting the prints, but also the photographers who donated prints and all of you who placed bids, whether you won the auction or not. The auctions raised several thousand dollars which will allow me to provide better care for my wife Teri who has advanced multiple myeloma cancer and severe peripheral neuropathy. It's so heartening to learn firsthand how much "conmmunity" there is in the photographic community. Thank you all again! Teri and I are very grateful.
